I received this book yesterday morning along with two others related to the field. We're preparing a freemium release and are looking for ways to see monetization of our non-game product through the eyes of a freemium game marketer.

This book gives me a deep understanding of what we need to calculate and review from a statistical standpoint in order to perform a deep analysis of our user base. It is focused on the calculation and analytical aspects. The other books spend more time on anecdotes and particular categories of advertisement/upsell/gameplay, whereas this book has comparatively few, which is fine with me. They don't really dig into analyzing the data.

This book is about gathering and analyzing the data to maximize LTV (Life Time Value of the customer). The only other place I have seen the type of explanation like in this book is in the author's blog mobiledevmemo.com.

The topics I found of particular interest related to measuring virality, events to be tracked for analysis, analysis spreadsheets and user segmentation. It helps if you have some background in statistics, but you can get most of the book if that's not your background.

Understanding this book will help you create and take every opportunity to understand your audience enough to maximally monetize your app.

Every once in a while a book comes along that perfectly encapsulates the ethos of our time. A book so remarkable, so sublime, so vivid and significantly poignant, that we have only but to stop, pause, and revel in the beauty of its' creation.

Freemium Economics: Leveraging Analytics and User Segmentation to Drive Revenue, is one of those books.

This is truly a seminal work by the author, one that, with radical zeal, distills down the principles and precepts necessary to survive in the byzantine and treacherous Mobile Gaming landscape.

Let us not fool ourselves, friends, for the sandbox we play in is a digital jungle. We breathe life into these mobile applications we build, pixel by painstaking pixel, only to have our hopes and dreams append to the D1/D3/D7/D30 retention metrics of our latest cohort.

This book, will give you the tools, tactics, strategies, and knowledge essential to gaining distribution infamy.

Here are some of my favorite topics covered:

- Commerce at $0 Price Point (Massive Scale, Purchasing a Intersection of Interest & Disposable Income)
- Fremium Case Studies (Skype, Spotify, Candy Crush Saga)
- User Segmentation, Cohorts, & A/B Testing
- Built-In Virality: K-factor & Cycle Times
- Paid User Acquisition & Alternative User Acquisition

It is with this, friends, that I leave you, my objective and unvarnished fervor for this book. A must-read for all those in Mobile Gaming, User Acquisition, or Start-ups involved in Mobile.

Format: Paperback
I recently moved into a PM role at a company that makes a freemium app and my Head of Product bought this book for me to read. I really enjoyed Freemium Economics...it's a very thorough overview of the freemium model, mostly from an analytics and revenue perspective, and for someone moving into product development with no prior understanding of freemium, the insight I gained from this book is extremely valuable. One thing to note is that the book doesn't go into detail about product design decisions...it reads more like a textbook, so it's very high-concept, and what it addresses really well is the process of developing and iterating on freemium products to maximize revenue. This is a great book and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone that needs a broad introduction to the freemium model

Freemium economics should be considered as the main reference guide on freemium and free-to-play. It is extremely comprehensive in both scope and depth. A must-have if you work in the industry!

I'm in the mobile game industry and this book has become my bible and reference guide on freemium economics and how to run a freemium business. Eric Seufert provides comprehensive insight to his data-driven approach on how to operate a successful freemium business. This book covers freemium economics from every angle including the very basics of freemium economics, analytics behind free-to-play, quantitative methods for product management, and a deep dive into the KPIs that drive virality, monetization, and LTV.

Everyone in the industry is talking about this book right now. If you operate a freemium business or are thinking about creating a free-to-play application, you need this book.
